leaves fall from the trees outside of my own front yard, but they haven't changed color yet. so we still need couple of more weeks before things really begin to get underway in that regard. but, that said, again, we are at least off to nice quiet start here locally. and that is going to mean more time here, if you manage to get outside yesterday at all, you know how beautiful it was through the afternoon. now, as we progress, throughout the day, any of the clear skies that we currently have, is going to yield to more cloud cover. very obvious wide. there is a frontal boundery on the way here, that front will be brink withing it some rain. specifically, tonight, though, i think we get out through the course of the after innocent here without any major hitches, just building clouds, and as this front crosses through, it will bring with it some beneficial rain. i don't think we're dealing with a deluge, but some of the rain could be locally steadier. meantime the pollen has not been bad lately. even despite what's been generally dry forecast lately, but ragweed, and sage brush, are the predominant ones right now, though, thankfully levels are nice and low through the next couple of days, and in
part because we do have some rain on the way. so always a benefit to that, right, even though it does squash out the plans. meanwhile looking at the temperature change, milder than this same time yesterday than mount pocono. but pretty much on par, give or take an agree or two, again, this is change, even minus or plus within the last 24 hours, this same time yesterday basically on par with these values. forty-five is the temperature at mount pocono, 49 currently in atlantic city, and a four here in philadelphia. meanwhile as the day goes on starting with sun, building clouds as the day goes on, still tip typically seasonable, then tonight, when the wet weather does move in specially late tonight. so i think the evening drive should be fine. then looking ahead to tomorrow morning, well, one of the mornings where you may want to set the alarm maybe ten extra minutes because there will be showers, and some likely steady rain out there to dodge before things gradually clear for some sunshine, but few more shower chances along the way later this week. meisha, over to you. >> perfect weather to turnoff the air conditioners, open those windows, gorgeous.
but heed that warning about having the rain tomorrow morning, as katie said, because it will absolutely slow us down. good news, you guys, good morning, happy monday, roadways looking good right now. nice and dry. you can see, the camera kind of bouncing up and down, letting us know it is a little windy out there actually. this is the vine. taillights are moving in the westbound direction. this is at the schuylkill. so the eastbound side and the westbound side, kind of keeping my eye on this morning, overall both directions actually looking pretty good. i'm hoping to keep you at this until around 5:30 as we push more deep near the 5:00 hour. right now enjoy that on the vine and the schuylkill. schuylkill taillights moving in the westbound direction. this is actually at the blue route. we are looking good here in the westbound side again schuylkill taillights westbound at the blue route looking good. i would say, starting to pink up maybe ever so slightly, overall for busy monday morning looking okay there. now, pull your attention to couple every accidents we have out there. overturned truck in jersey, 295 northbound before route 42, right lane, is still blocked, in that area. also, looking here, another accident in jersey route 73 southbound, before 295. two right lanes are blocked
